Janice Hall is President and Founder of Natural Network International (NNI). A business development, trends forecasting and marketing company since 1991, NNI guides leadership in organizations with marketing intelligence and strategic management in areas of environmental sustainability and clean technology solutions.

Hall has a keen ability to identify a person or organization’s unique market proposition, in order to reach the ideal demographic target in a language they can understand. Her background in natural sciences gives her marketing an added dimension.

Ms. Hall has achieved 30 years of experience as a pioneer in the LOHAS (Lifestyles of Health and Sustainability) industry. Her trendsetting expertise covers a wide variety of natural, organic and environmental products and services. As co-founder in 2002 of Organic Vintners importer, she initiated development of the organic category, new in the wine industry, and developed category leadership in the US market.

As Associate Group Publisher for four magazines Ms. Hall co-developed and launched two new trade publications. As Director of International Development, she created the template for global expansion for New Hope Natural Media, a leading communications company which was instrumental in driving the growth of the natural products market to $81 billion in 2010. This included identifying trade opportunities and barriers as well as building relationships with the leaders of trade associations and distribution systems in numerous countries.

Event planning and execution have been a special focus both nationally and internationally. Several key projects include: development input for the internationally recognized Natural Products Expos in PA, D.C., MD, CA and Amsterdam, (attracting over 55,000 attendees) to a five day environment and development conference at the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio De Janeiro, as well as numerous events at the United Nations, Japan Society and the Princeton Environmental Film Festival.

Showing a broad versatility in PR campaign strategy for specific products, people and events (nationally and internationally, for-profit and non-profit arenas) from billboard campaigns in Times Square, to the AREDAY Summit (American Renewable Energy Day) in Aspen, and the use of multi-media vehicles to advance the local, award-winning Princeton Film Festival, as well as the far-reaching and ground-breaking scientific expeditions for Blue Ocean Sciences, Hall demonstrates a finely-tuned aptitude for targeting the core competency of the project at hand.

Hall’s public speaking background includes interviewing thought leaders and change agents for Choosing Green TV at the Clinton Global Initiative since 2008. These include interviews with notable figures such as Robert Kennedy Jr., Lester Brown and Nobel Prize winner Wangari Maathai. She has also planned and facilitated workshops on packaging, promotion and international business development.

Hall is a Board Member and Director of Strategic Marketing for Blue Ocean Sciences. In the Princeton Community she sits on the planning committee of the award-winning Princeton Environmental Film Festival, and serves as a founding member of the Business Committee of Sustainable Princeton, a partnership between Princeton Environmental Commission and the New Jersey Sustainability State Institute. Hall continues her studies with course work in international policy and environmental sciences at Princeton University.

Hall has served clients globally from Australia, Argentina, Belgium, Brazil, England, France, Germany, India, Italy, Mexico, the Netherlands, and several countries on the African continent.

I am oh so jazzed about my upcoming eco-adventure with Climb for Conservation to trek Mt. Kilimanjaro (http://climbforconservation.org/). I will join 9 other “Green Girls” including Mariel Hemingway, Ginna Kelly and Leilani Munter to trek this 19,336 ft. mountain to raise awareness that the glaciers made famous by Mariel’s grandfather, Ernest Hemingway in The Snows of Kilimanjaro, are melting due to climate change and deforestation. We will raise money for recently deceased Nobel Peace Prize recipient, Wangari Maathai’s, Green Belt Movement and the Mkomazi Rhino Sanctuary, which is the only rhino sanctuary in Tanzania.

“I see myself as a social architect. Working to bring renewable energy and climate change solutions to our future are both areas of work around which I have a great deal of zeal. I am passionate about nature and how we are all so intricately connected. Our interdependence is the poetry of life. I try to face each sunrise as a new creation and each day with gratitude.”
